Lubbers Quarters to Snake Cay
09 January 2012
Another anniversary!!! We left Clearwater one year ago today for our new life! It’s been a memorable year – good Lord willing there will be many more to come. Easy five mile jib sail to Snake Cay (there are no poisonous snakes in the Bahamas – PTL!) where the cut is not visible till you are right upon it. Snake Cay was the home of the Owens-Illinois Company in the 60’s for their lumber operations. Since the 60’s it has been abandoned and is in ruins and now its claim to fame is that it is one of the best “hurricane holes” in the Abacos. It is seldom visited by cruising boats, but by reading the water depths at half tide, we worked our way into a cozy anchorage surrounded by mangroves and tidal flats. We are the only boat here, but were visited by 10-12 spotted leopard rays while we were dink riding. The great silver hunter also spotted two Lionfish – will return tomorrow for the kill!
